I tried to compare a bit libdownload with current libfetch code, by curiosity.
I am a bit confused though now, it looks like the code already handles
multiple slashes. But well, I will need to investigate it more.

Anyway, while looking at this, I found one difference in libfetch,
which was introduced by this patch :

This looks rather interesting, I always noticed the high latency of
ftp access on -Sy operations, and that is why I always use http now.
But this patch might solve it.
